The famous church isn't the reason to visit Richmond's East side- it's actually the 19th century neighborhood filled with brick row houses that are federal, greek revival and Italianate! Park the car and stroll the streets especially the St. John's chuch block and the 2600 block of Franklin street (for Greek revival at its best.) the houses are restored and... More

I was very fortunate to experience the reenactment of Patrick Henry's speech one glorious September Sunday, ironically with a cousin from the UK who had actually written about the Civil War in the US as part of her thesis. (I am also from England) We joked during the speech that all is forgiven! The church is still an active church... More

If you are a history buff, your time in Richmond should start at St. John's church, on "Church Hill", not just for what happened inside the church -(re-enactments of the Virginia convention on the eve of the Revolutionary War)- but also for the views of Church Hill, one of the best preserved and largely intact historic urban neighborhoods in the...

This is worth a visit to hear the re-enactment of Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" speech.

a good place to take your children for a hands-on history lesson. It has beautiful grounds where you can walk around and the architecture is absolutely beautiful. I nice visit for couples and families.

Beautiful architecture and to be able to walk the grounds was really fantastic. So much history from the founding fathers to the civil war in a 10 block area.

Patrick Henry gave his famous speech here, and the grounds alone are worth a visit — the colonial church building and accompanying graveyard are well worth a visit. Colonial Richmond at its best.

Went with my mother, aunt and husband. Beautiful scenery around-the headstones, the church, the grounds. Inside the church looks like it has been untouched by modern technology. The tour guide was great and the gift shop has some really neat items. A must do!!

I am embarrassed that we have lived in Church Hill for over 10 years and made our first visit to St. John's this past Christmas Eve. It is beautiful inside. Lovely stained glass windows. We will go for the re-enactment of Patrick Henry's speech this spring. Don't delay your visit like we did.
